Chairman’s HR training provides juggling skills

first_imgLeeds United’s chairman believes that his background in HR has given him theskills to deal with the football club’s recent troubles, including the highprofile trial of two of its footballers on assault charges. Peter Ridsdale, who enjoyed a 17-year career in HR including seniorpositions at ICL, the Burton Group and Del Monte, told the Recruitment Societylast week that his time in HR has helped him lead the club through turbulenttimes since he joined as chairman in 1997. This year the club has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasonsfollowing the conviction for affray of England international Jonathan Woodgateafter an attack on an Asian student and the acquittal of team-mate Lee Bowyer. Ridsdale said: “No football club in this country has had to go throughwhat Leeds has. My time in HR taught me that if you are in line management youmust get out there and show leadership when times are tough.” He believes the skills he learnt in HR have also helped him balance theneeds of both supporters and shareholders throughout the problems. Ridsdale said: “You try selling a player when you have 40,000 peopletelling you what they will do to you if you do. And try sacking him when he isworth £15 million and shareholders want to cash in on the value of the squad. “Like HR, I have to advise others on the best course of action. My timein HR taught me that you must persuade people and not tell them what to do,especially when they are 20 years old and earn £2 million a year.” Comments are closed.

Proptech firm launches London Underground advertising blitz

first_imgHome » News » Proptech firm launches London Underground advertising blitz previous nextProptechProptech firm launches London Underground advertising blitz’Risky’ adverts are designed to persuade renters to download the tech firm’s credit score checking smartphone app.Nigel Lewis25th November 201901,170 Views Renting proptech firm Canopy has launched an advertising blitz on the London Underground to promote its credit score monitoring smartphone app for renters, funded by the £3.1 million it recently raised from investors in August.The campaign, which Canopy says was designed by its advertising agency Mellor&Smith to cut through to target customers glued to their smartphones on their way to work, features a poster dominated by the word ‘Nuffin’.“That’s precisely how much credit history you’re currently building with your rent,” it says.The campaign will run for two weeks and feature in different size formats in stations as well as carriages.According to Mellor&Smith, the poster is an example of advertising that is designed to ‘take a risk’ in order to get people’s attention.Proptech referencingCanopy enables tenants to add their rent payments to their credit histories and, it is claimed by Experian, 80% then see an improvement in their credit score.Using this data, Canopy then offers a free tenant referencing service to agents and landlords alongside a paid-for, more comprehensive service.“Generation Rent needs to realise their monthly rent payments could be used to increase their credit history, increasing the likelihood they’ll be able to secure mortgages and much more,” says Canopy founder Tahir Farooqui (left).“We asked Mellor&Smith to help us grab the attention of people who often busy catching up on their Twitter timelines.”Mellor&Smith is an unusual advertising firm that welcomes visitors to its website with the line ‘you bring the whisky and we’ll get risky’ and recently signed a pledge not to work with companies involved in making money from fossil fuels.proptech referencing Canopy Tahir Farooqui November 25, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

KTT expresses to link Kowloon and Guangzhou

first_imgINTRO: Deliveries are due to begin this month of rolling stock for Kowloon – Canton Railway Corp’s 160 km/h KTT service, which will start running between Kowloon and Guangzhou later this year THIS MONTH is due to see the delivery of the first rolling stock to work 160 km/h inter-city expresses on the 181 km Kowloon – Guangzhou corridor. Kowloon – Canton Railway Corp and Guangzhou Railway (Group) Corp are working to upgrade the corridor to world class standards, and before the end of the year they expect to launch KTT express services targeted at business travellers and international tourists at the top end of the market.KCRC is buying one trainset, which is expected to be able to operate a maximum of three return trips a day between Kowloon and Guangzhou, with an end-to-end journey time of around 1h 40min. In order to offer high seating capacity during peak periods, on a route that is already busy with commuter traffic at its southern end, double-deck coaches have been specified. Each train will comprise two first class and 10 standard class coaches, with an electric locomotive at each end. To increase service frequency at a later date, the 2+12 formation may be split into two sets of 1+6, using an optional driving trailer at one end.Following international tendering, a contract was awarded in November 1995 to a consortium led by Itochu Corp of Japan. Adtranz is responsible for the two locomotives and Kinki Sharyo is building the 12 double-deck coaches. With deliveries due to be complete by August, it is hoped to begin revenue services between October and December. The exact date will depend on the completion of 25 kV 50 Hz electrification work on the GRC section from Lo Wu to Guangzhou.Operational and safety requirementsKTT is designed for 160 km/h operation, the highest speed possible on the Hong Kong – Guangzhou route without recourse to tilting. High-capacity double-deck trains carrying 50% more passengers than conventional rolling stock were considered preferable to 200 km/h tilting equipment despite the possibility of an 11% reduction in journey times.In view of the prospects of KTT trains running through the long tunnels on the projected West Rail route (RG 5.96 p259), the coaches have been designed to meet stringent fire safety standards. Adopting standards for underground railways wherever possible, materials were chosen and equipment designed so that fire and smoke levels would be as low as reasonably practicable.A half-hour fire rating was specified for equipment cabinets and inter-car doors. Smoke detectors are installed at strategic locations throughout the train and dampers are fitted to the air-conditioning system to prevent smoke proliferation. Should a fire break out in a tunnel, the train can be divided at the mid-point, where AAR-type couplers have been fitted. The unaffected half would then be used to evacuate passengers.Wherever possible, proven technology has been chosen for KTT to minimise design and manufacturing start-up costs. The electric locomotives, for example, are members of the Adtranz/SLM Lok 2000 family.Bogies for the double-deck coaches, combining coil spring primary and air-bag secondary suspension, have been developed from a Kinki Sharyo design for shinkansen high-speed trainsets. For the interiors, seats, air-conditioning and sliding plug doors have been chosen from a range of proven products. KCRC is expecting 100% service availability from its trainset, with routine maintenance undertaken outside service hours. Major overhauls requiring the removal of a vehicle from service will be carried out during periods when traffic is low. The train will be able to operate with only one loco, and all coach equipment has been designed on the principle of modular redundancy. With the exception of static converter and air-conditioning unit replacement, all equipment maintenance can be undertaken from within the coach. A full train management system, incorporating diagnostic functions, has been specified for KTT.Passenger coachesThe bodyshells are all-welded stainless steel structures, spray painted in KTT colours, but retaining the brushed steel background finish. KCRC appointed the Roundel Design Group to develop the branding and livery. Interior design was carried out by Jones Garrard to a modern, businesslike theme, with a note of luxury suggested by rich colour patterns derived from traditional Chinese costume.First class coaches will each seat 74 passengers, and standard class 112; all seats can recline. Of the 1 268 seats in a 12-car train, around 30% will be arranged in facing pairs with tables. The remainder will be in airline-style rows, with a seat pitch of 1000mm in first class and 925mm in standard class. First class seating is 2+1, and standard class 2+2, with the seats cantilevered from the floor to facilitate cleaning and provide under-seat luggage space; seat supplier is Compin. Four video monitors per coach are provided for passenger entertainment. A range of audio channels will be available in first class, where passengers will be provided with headphones.A Stone UK Ltd air-conditioning unit at each end of the coach roof feeds treated air into the passenger areas via grilles running the complete length of each deck. The interior temperature will be a constant 25°C with 55% relative humidity, whereas external ambient temperatures can climb to 35°C with 90% humidity. Static converters on each vehicle take power at 1·5 kV 50Hz AC from the locomotive to supply 380V 50Hz AC for air-conditioning, lighting and catering equipment, and 110V DC for battery charging, control equipment and the emergency supply. If a static converter fails, its dependent equipment can be supplied from an adjacent coach. In the event of a complete power supply failure, battery power to the brushless DC evaporator fan motors will maintain emergency ventilation for an extended period.Each coach has two vestibules, one for passenger use during boarding and alighting and the other for staff use. The entrance floor height is designed to allow level boarding from the high platforms at both Kowloon and Guangzhou; steps are provided for use at intermediate stations and for emergency detrainment. The entrance vestibule contains luggage stacks and two card-operated pay phones. There are two lavatory compartments with vacuum toilets, one each of Asian and western style.The service vestibule area contains a multi-purpose compartment for a passenger in a wheelchair, bulky luggage or two seated passengers. There is also a pantry containing a refrigerator and two microwave ovens, where food will be prepared for at-seat trolley service; drinks will be complimentary, but food served only to order.The lower deck of each first class car will be provided with a train manager’s compartment containing a control console for the public address, train management and video passenger information / entertainment systems.LocomotivesThe two Lok 2000 electric locos being supplied by Adtranz and SLM will be equipped with both KCRC and Chinese Railways ATP equipment. When operating on KCRC tracks, a current limiter will ensure that the amount of current drawn and the time it is drawn for do not exceed the requirements of a KCRC commuter EMU. Locomotive pantographs will have a reach of almost 2 m to operate on West Rail where the contact wire has been set at 6700mm above rail height to accommodate double-stack container trains in the future. The standard Swiss cab air-conditioning capacity has been increased to 7·6 kW to cope with the sub-tropical climate of south China. oCAPTION: Interiors of the 12 KTT express double-deck coaches being built by Kinki Sharyo.

Bundesliga joins bandwagon suspends all matches

first_img The governing body’s statement added: ‘The goal is still to end the season by the summer – from a sporting point of view, but especially because an early end of the season could have existential consequences for some clubs.’ Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara had earlier urged the German football bosses to stop ‘fooling around’ as he criticised the original decision to hold Bundesliga matches as normal this weekend. ‘This is crazy. Please stop fooling around and land on reality,’ he said. ‘Let’s be honest, there are much more important priorities than any sport.’ Matches in France, England, Italy and Spain have been suspended with immediate effect, making Germany the last of the ‘big five’ to do so.

Bayern Munich hand Ribery “heavy fine” for Tweetstorm

first_img“Franck has been slandered and insulted,” said Salihamidzic. “And not only Franck, but his pregnant wife, his child and his mother, who is currently in hospital for an operation. Franck wanted to defend himself and defend his family. He has the right to do that. I support him in that, but unfortunately he totally lost control.”German media and social media users had called on the reigning Bundesliga champions to punish the striker, who is out of contract at the end of the season.“Bosses must suspend Ribery,” urged German tabloid Bild.The paper referred to comments by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the club’s chief executive, who, in October responded to media criticism by quoting the German Constitution that “the dignity of the human being is intangible”.“He is right, but it would not hurt if he explained it to his employee Franck Ribery,” said Bild.Bayern and Rummenigge have also been on the defensive recently after criticism from some of the club’s own fans over the decision to return to Qatar for winter training. RiberyBerlin, Germany | AFP |  Bayern Munich will impose “a heavy fine” on Franck Ribery for his obscenity laced outburst on social media, the club’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said on Sunday.The French striker put a string of angry posts on Twitter and Instagram on Saturday aimed at those who had criticised him for eating a gold-coated steak.“I had a long talk with Franck and I let him know that we would impose a heavy fine on him and he accepted it,” Salihamidzic told journalists in Qatar, where the club is on a training camp.“He used words that we, FC Bayern, cannot accept and that Franck does not have the right to use, as a role-model and player of FC Bayern”, added Salihamidzic.On Thursday, the 35-year-old Bayern Munich player posted a video on social media showing him in a steak house owned by celebrity Turkish restauranteur Salt Bae and rubbing his hands before tucking into a huge chop coated in gold.That ostentatious luxury, and the reported cost of the meal, drew ferocious criticism before Ribery — who earns an estimated eight million euros a year with the German champions — hit back on Saturday.“Let’s start with the envious, the angry, surely born because of a broken condom,” read the first of the posts on Ribery’s Twitter account. “F*ck your mothers, your grandmothers and your whole family tree,” wrote Ribery in the first of three irate posts, having taken care to sanitise the French word “n*quez”.Salihamidzic made clear that Ribery did not pay the bill himself because he had been invited to the restaurant. He also acknowledged that the player had been responding to a flurry of insults. Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Dam Inn no longer undefeated after Vikings coast to a 33-28 victory

first_imgA sluggish start cost the Dam Inn its first defeat of the season as defending champion Castlegar Vikings edged Mates 33-28 in West Kootenay Men’s Flag Football League action Sunday at Mount Sentinel Field.The loss drops the Mates to 4-1, two points in front of Nelson’s Our Glass Ogs.Castlegar, starting the season off on the wrong foot, won for the second time this season.Dam The Inn Mates started off very sluggishly in the first half allowing the Vikes to pick apart their injury-depleted secondary. Using a two-quarterback rotation Castlegar routinely hooked up with their wideouts on large yardage gains as the Mates were missing several key players on defence.Castlegar quarterback John Lloyd led the Vikes charge throwing multiple touchdowns, giving the victors a 20 -6 lead at the half. Lloyd hooked up with Brody Sakaluk, Steve Mota, Jay Trower, Jaime Simpson and Carl Perepolkin.In the second half the Mates seemed to have new life.  They started running new defensive schemes; elaborate blitz packages and a zone defence that threw off the quarterbacking tandem of the Vikes.  Soon enough they were forcing three and outs and had a crucial pick to get the themselves to within one possession of taking the lead. Joel Devito had a pick and two TD’s for the mates, while Jeff Hodge and Kyle Niminiken also intercepted the Vikings quarterbacks. Kelly Voykin tossed three TD passes, two to Devito and adding another to John Parker.  It was however, too little too late for the Dam Inn Mates when just as the time was about to run out and the Mates getting in position to tie the game up, the Vikes got a game ending interception.  The league resumes Sunday at Mount Sentinel with Nelson Our Glass playing the Dam Inn Mates in a battle top two clubs at 11 a.m. while Castlegar Vikes face the Trail Thundercats at 1 p.m.— with files from Adam Pearllast_img read more

Saints face Spartans Friday in home opener at Castlegar Complex

first_imgTwo up and two down.After struggling through most of last season the Selkirk Saints is the early surprise in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League.The Saints look to make it three-for-three Friday at the Castlegar Rec Complex Arena when the squad hosts Trinity Western University Spartains at 7:30 p.m.”TWU is a hard-working, defensively strong team who will come out hungry on Friday night as they go after their first win,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “Their 8-6 loss to TRU (last) weekend was uncharacteristic; they tend to be a tough, no-nonsense group that plays the game smart. They’re well-coach by a former NHLer (Dwayne Lowdermilk) and I’m sure they’ll make us work for whatever we get.”The Saints, completing the exhibition season 3-0, are coming off a pair of dramatic one-goal victories against the defending BCIHL champion, University of Victoria.Selkirk won the opener 4-3 before capturing the back-end of the series in dramatic fashion, 5-4 in overtime.Trinity Western, meanwhile, will be looking for their first win of the season following a pair of home ice defeats to Eastern Washington (by a 3-0 score) and Thompson Rivers (8-6).The Spartans boast a pair of former BCHL captains in Tyler Miller (Chilliwack) and Brad Bakken (Langley) on their blueline, while forwards Jamie Russell (Miramichi, MHL) and Jamey Kreller (Sicamous, KIJHL) each potted a pair of goals during the team’s opening weekend homestand. The Saints received contributions from throughout their line-up against UVic, as no less than nine players put up multiple points during the weekend.Their offence was boosted by solid contributions from the back-end, as Dylan Smith and Sandro Moser combined for five points and rookie Lucas Hildebrand fired home the game winner in overtime on Saturday. “We’ve got a deep group of forwards and we’d like to roll our lines and keep everyone involved, but spending six or eight minutes killing penalties in a period means that certain guys aren’t getting on the ice,”  Dubois said.”We can chalk up the high number of penalties against UVic to having so many guys adjusting to BCIHL officiating, but we need to see a quick improvement in our discipline.” Tickets for Friday’s game will be available at the door for $8 (Adults) and $5 (Selkirk students & staff, seniors, children 6 & older).Season passes will also be available at special rates on Friday night. For more information on Saints single game tickets and passes, visit GoSaints.ca.SAINTS NOTES: Selkirk defenceman Lucas Hildrebrand was named an Honourable Mention for the BCIHL’s Player of the Week award on Monday after his OT tally two days earlier. He also played a steady, physical game in both of his team’s wins.last_img read more
